TRAILER – Parasite (1982)
Parasite has one distinction over a number of films released in 3-D during the early 80s when studios where trying to bring back the fad. Unlike Jaws 3-D or Amityville 3-D, Parasite wasn’t the third installment in a franchise, thus it couldn’t use 3-D in its title. What a shame, because if there had been a Parasite 1 and 2 that proceeded this film, then Demi Moore could have possibly added two more trash features to her resume to go along with of a number of Grindhouse kryptonite flicks such as St. Elmo’s Fire or About Last Night..This was her first starring role. Released as being the first futuristic monster movie in 3-D, Parasite really isn’t that good, but any film that played at Grindhouse theaters in 3-D is worth a look for followers of this site. The flick does offer us some nice gory moments, particularly a scene where the monster bursts out of a person’s head. Legendary monster maker Stan Winston created the effects.
